Defending the Caveman at Theatre on the Bay

Send to Kindle
Defending the Caveman

Defending the Caveman

I’m feeling very smug; I’ve got tickets to a performance of Defending the Caveman at Camps Bay’s intimate Theatre on the Bay.  I first heard about Defending the Caveman when I was living in London (if I remember correctly it was on at the Apollo Theatre in Hammersmith) but I never got around to going, so when a friend told me that it was on at Theatre on the Bay I asked my caveman to get us tickets!

Known as the ‘date show’ Defending the Caveman has enjoyed a phenomenal, record-breaking run in theatres around the world and is back in Cape Town with Alan Committie in the leading role.  The performance is both funny and informative; a comedy about the lifelong, baffling differences and similarities between men and women!

I’ve only been to Theatre on the Bay in Camps Bay once before and that was a few years ago but it’s fondly known as Cape Town’s most beautiful theatre and hosts a range of local and international performances – perfect for an evening of entertainment.  The great thing about Theatre on the Bay is that one doesn’t have to worry about rushing from a pre-theatre dinner before the curtain call; Theatre on the Bay has its very own restaurant!

Situated on the first floor the comfy, relaxed venue that is the Act I Theatre Café is open for dinner both before and after the evening’s performance.  Reviews and newspaper clippings slipped under glass-topped tables provide a bit of light entertainment and photos of South African productions line the walls.

The menu of the restaurant changes seasonally and you can stretch your meal out; starters and main course before the show begins and dessert during the interval or with a coffee after the show has ended!  Drinks can also be taken into the theatre; the chairs are even equipped with glass holders!

So why don’t you get your hands on a ticket for Defending the Caveman and make a night of it!

When & Where?
The performance runs until August 28th and tickets are available through Computicket.

After living in London and travelling the world for many years and more recently living in the Mother City, I now reside on a tranquil sugar cane farm in Kearsney; an area steeped in the history of South Africa’s sugar industry. During the summer months I get involved with the community by assisting the local primary school with swimming lessons at our country club. Some of my favourite things are reading or picking freshly grown vegetables and Iceland poppies in our garden. Milly, my boxer loves her walks to the river that runs through our farm and sometimes, Sandy the cat I hand reared, joins us for a stroll!
